The heart is one of the most important organs in the human body. Located in the chest on the left, the heart pumps blood throughout the body via the circulatory system, supplying oxygen and nutrients.
A healthy heart is essential to good health. In fact, a healthy human heart beats about 100,000 times a day with an average adult’s heart beating about 60 to 80 times per minute.
Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) is a term that houses all conditions that affect the heart and blood vessels.
